What would be your top three things to see or do in Wollongong for newcomers?
First of all, drive and familiarise yourself with the landscapes up and down the coast. I suggest heading up and over to the Southern Highlands and go down through Kangaroo Valley to see some spectacular landscapes.
Second, pick one of those places you saw and immerse yourself in it. Go for a swim, go for a bush walk, a bike ride or even hang gliding. Or go and see a famous location like the Scarborough Pub. But don’t just think “Wow, that looks great” go and immerse yourself in it. Don’t just be a bystander, partake in these activities.
Third, go and experience the vibe of the place. Meet the people who live at Scarborough, Windang, West Dapto or Port Kembla and who would never live anywhere else.
